Hello to All, 

It was a remarkably warm winter morning which brought out birders, but not that many birds, although we had a few nice surprises.  It was a great day to walk off all the Thanksgiving turkey though, so a fine time was had by all. 

BIRDERS:  Marian, Karin Gary, Chris, Steve, Jennie and welcome back to Paul, Cathy and Wes.    

TIME:   8:00 to 10:00am           

PLACES: Wooded Island, Bobolink Meadow and the Outer Harbor           

Many thanks to Paul for sharing his e-bird report for the Wooded Island/Bobolink Meadow area:

Hello to All,

The cold and windy weather guaranteed that our steps would be quickened on this morning’s circuit. The Hooded Mergansers and Ruddy Duck were great sightings. However, the Nashville Warbler was a record breaker for a late date!

Buffleheads and Scaup were in the Outer Harbor. Randy S. and Dan L. reported an American Black Duck in the Inner Harbor.

BIRDERS:      6.         (1) Gary M., (2) Jennie S., (3) Karin D., (4) Catherine G., (5) David P., and (6) Pat D.

Hello to All,

The gate to the parking lot was closed. Randy & I gained access by coming along the road in front of the Museum.  Gary & Steve parked near the golf shack and walked through Bobolink Meadow. The group came together on the walk around the North Lagoon.

Randy was our complier. With his keen hearing and concentration, our species count notched up.

We found four Wooly Bears.  As winter forecasters, their black and orange pattern predicts a mild winter.

Hello to All,

It was a pleasant Walk this morning, if you remembered to wear layered clothing, which is something all birders quickly learn to do.

We saw a 16 inch Garden Snake on the path in Bobolink Meadow. A child discovered it moving slowly.  Its tongue is red. Erin picked it up very gently and moved it to the grassy area next to the path. 

A late Monarch Butterfly was in the Meadow. We felt sorry that it was late in migration and wished it well on its journey.
